Irish Americans monitoring the situation

WILLITS, CALIFORNIA - Park ranger, Gustav Gustafson, Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP) spokesman, was sporting a bandage around his head at a press conference early this morning.

"Thankfully, the Redwoods are currently enveloped in a quiet fog this morning as are the leprechauns" reported Gustafson, "but last night was another matter. The wee folks were extremely noisy, seemed to be having a party, playing Chieftain music on a loudspeaker, and jumping around in the branches. I also know they have been imbibing Guinness Extra Stout as one of the bottles came tumbling down and hit me on the head!"

When asked by a reporter if the park authorities have discovered the reason why the little people are camping out in the Redwood canopy, Gustafson admitted they hadn't a clue. "We have sent for old Grandma Shaughnessy, who lives nearby in Ukiah, to come and speak to them using a bullhorn. Her grandson, Seamus, is bringing her, but they haven't arrived yet. We hope the leprechauns will talk to her as she speaks fluent Gaelic."

Meanwhile, a small group of concerned Irish American citizens have quietly gathered beneath the leprechaun infested Redwoods.
